At Castle Paints we care about the impact our business has on the environment and we are committed to doing all in our power to protect our community for generations to come. To mark World Earth Day, we wanted to share some of the sustainable practices we have implemented as we work towards a greener business model that helps our customers make responsible decisions about the products they use.
Here’s a snapshot of our sustainable ways of working that help to protect our planet.
We’re Environmentally Responsible
At Castle Paints we are committed to practicing environmental and social sustainability. We are proud to be silver members of the Irish Green Business Council and to be part of a global action network that can bring about transformative change. Additionally, our ISO 14001 certification for effective environmental management systems, demonstrates our ongoing focus on all eco-related matters.
We’re Carbon Conscious
Where possible we source our raw materials and consumables locally to help reduce the carbon footprint of Castle Paints products. We're conscious of road miles and use dynamic daily route planning to help run an efficient delivery service while reducing energy consumption.
We’re Powered by Renewable Energy
Our facility is powered by specially specified Solar PV systems which produce enough energy to support the entire premises. We strategically upgrade equipment to more energy efficient alternatives as we work towards reducing our carbon footprint even further.
Our Packaging is Fully Recyclable
Castle Paints products are packaged using fully recyclable materials. Our paint packaging consists of100% recyclable metal or PCR recycled plastic - both of which are part of the 'circular economy' meaning they can be easily recycled and repurposed.
We Invest in R&D to Develop New Products with Lower VOCs
Our R&D focuses on reducing the number of VOC emissions from our product range. New Product Development includes developing water-based solutions for products which would be traditionally solvent based.
At Castle Paints sustainability is fundamental to how we do business, and we are committed to continuous learning to progress in a positive direction. Whatever your project, we’ve got a paint solution for you. The Castle Paints product range is sustainably produced at our state-of-the-art facility in Tullamore, Co. Offaly. Make the greener choice and buy Irish to help tackle carbon emissions to create a more sustainable environment for all.
